These gallery exhibitions are open - yes, open - for visitors

Galleries are the first cultural venues to reopen. In the Boston area, several are welcoming visitors this week — equipped with disinfectant, hand sanitizer, and face masks.
“I feel very safe,” said Susan Lanoue, owner of Lanoue Gallery... “It’s been learning a new way of doing things, but it’s not that hard.”
Questions remain about the timing of reopening, especially in SoWa, where several galleries were affected by a flood caused by a water main break in April. At all galleries, opening receptions will go by the wayside until people can safely gather again.
